"Turning the envelope over, his hand trembling, Harry saw a purple wax seal bearing a coat of arms; a lion, an eagle, a badger and a snake surrounding a large letter 'H'."
Harry Potter has never even heard of Hogwarts when the letters start dropping on the doormat at number four, Privet Drive. Addressed in green ink on yellowish parchment with a purple seal, they are swiftly confiscated by his grisly aunt and uncle. Then, on Harry's eleventh birthday, a great beetle-eyed giant of a man called Rubeus Hagrid bursts in with some astonishing news: Harry Potter is a wizard, and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. An incredible adventure is about to begin!
(I want to tell you that I'm not English, so I know I made faults in this text)
I loved it ! This book was a wonderful reading and I really enjoy to go to Hogwarts with Harry, Ron and Hermione ! This universe of magic is fabulous and it embark us for pleasure moments ! I've ever read this book three times in french, and this reading in english stay a pleasure, like before ! The cover of the book is also beautiful and the calligraphy of the title and its golden colour is magnificent ! I've also learn a lot of words, with this english reading, and I think it's better than learn english at school, it's more funny !
You MUST read this book, in english, french, spanish, italian or other language, cause it's a real pleasure !
« Sir – Professor Dumbledore ? Can I ask you something ? »
« Obviously, you've just done so, Dumbledore smiled. You may ask me one more thing, however. »
« What do you see when you look in the mirror ? »
« I ? I see myself holding a pair of thick, woollen socks. »
« One can never have enough socks, said Dumbledore. Another christmas has come and gone and I didn't get a single pair. People will insist on giving me books. »
It was only when he was back in bed that it struck Harry that Dumbledore might not have been quite truthful. But then, he thought, as he shoved Scabbers off his pillows, it had been quite a personal question. »
